Court

 
Court OF Protection

The Court of Protection is a court that deals with decisions or actions taken under the Mental Capacity Act. You or someone helping you would need to apply to the Court if someone needs permission from the Court to make decisions about your health, welfare, financial affairs or property.

 
DEPUTYSHIP SERVICES

Deputyship is a way of getting the legal authority to make decisions on someone's behalf, if that person no longer has the ability to grant an LPA or EPA. The application is only the beginning of a longer process.

 
Statutory wills

The only difference between a Statutory Will and any other Will is that a Statutory Will is authorised by the Court of Protection and signed by the Deputy or Attorney (appointed under a Lasting or Enduring Power of Attorney) of the person who lacks capacity.

 
Child trust funds

A child trust fund is a tax free savings account available for children born between 1 September 2002 and 2 January 2011.
